sick bldg/Stachyboytris

Hi fellow bionetters,

I hope that someone out there can help me answer a question posed to me by my
Dean.  We have been having some problems with one of the buildings, i.e., sick
building syndrome.  Stachybotyris (spelling may be a little off) was isolated
and my Dean wants to know it is associated with sick buildings.  My memory and
medical mycology books list it as a contaminant.  So does any one know if it is
associated with sick building syndrome?  Is it an allergen?

Thanks in advance.
